ARM TechCon Session "Virtualization as the Nexus of Multicore Power Management"
Thursday, November 11, 2010
Adoption of multicore technology for the desktop,data center and embedded designs responds to comparable needs – to scale compute capacity without stepping up system clocks and to attain more MIPS-per-watt for devices and applications. Multicore for the desktop and data center enjoys mature support from deployed OSes. Even as embedded OSes become more adept at running on multicore CPUs, applications and middleware still face challenges of thread-safety, concurrency and load balancing. Mobile virtualization is a means to get maximum value from multicore ARM designs, at both architectural and app levels. It examines multicore use cases for virtualization, and how it brings superior CPU utilization,greater security, smoother legacy migration,& smarter energy management to multicore designs.
